List search wildcard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    How to i configure all lists to search also by wildcard e.g. if a user only searches for part of a word?

    I've configured the main search just by appending an * onto all searches, however this doesnt seem possible with list search boxes.

    Expecting the average user to include an * manually is not realistic.

  • Hi,

    I tested in my test environment, I can use * to search list items using list search boxes.

    Please run the "Start Incremental Crawl" in central administration, then search using * in your list search boxes.

    Best Regards,
